As a participant of the upcoming symposium “GCCIR Matchmaking Symposium” organized by the GCCIR and Innoget next 19 November 2018 in Barcelona (Spain), the company Quantum Silicon Inc. (QSi) is seeking European partners to meet at the Barcelona event to develop a joint collaboration project. Quantum Silicon Inc. is specifically interested in: • Developing relationships with companies and research organizations to collaborate on developing atomic scale fabrication technologies. QSI, one of the company’s products presented below, basic manufacturing technology uses the tip of a scanned probe microscope to selectively remove hydrogen atoms from a hydrogen-terminated silicon surface. The company has been automating this process, getting to the point where it is accurate and relatively fast, and now wants to find partners to make it even faster and more accurate. This could include developing special purpose machines in which several tips work in parallel. • Companies and research organizations to collaborate with on developing and deploying the atomic scale coprocessor that Quantum Silicon Inc. has developed for accelerating the training of neural networks from unlabeled data. In case you are interested in meeting Quantum Silicon Inc. at the Barcelona event to discuss a potential collaboration, please register for free to the symposium through the orange button provided above.

As a participant of the upcoming symposium “GCCIR Matchmaking Symposium” organized by the GCCIR and Innoget next 19 November 2018 in Barcelona (Spain), the company Phase Advanced Sensor Systems Corp. is seeking European partners to meet at the Barcelona event to develop a joint collaboration project. Phase Advanced Sensor Systems Crop. is specifically interested in: • Partners with experience in lubricant analysis and lubricant monitoring sensors. The company would like to expand its product offering and already have a clear and strong channel to market. • Partners with experience with experience in hostile environment sensor packaging. The company has finished its prototype testing and will soon have finished pilot testing on its designs, and is looking for partners to help with the final packaging and ruggedizing of the sensors for implementation in the field. • Partners with expertise in Infrared Spectroscopy of oil samples as Phase Advanced Sensor Systems Corp. is planning on starting a project to build an inline infrared spectroscopy system for monitoring large engine lubricant systems. In case you are interested in meeting Phase Advanced Sensor Systems Corp. at the Barcelona event to discuss a potential collaboration, please register for free to the symposium through the orange button provided above.

Waxes are typically make up of linear or branched-chain hydrocarbon chains and can contain polar functionalities like e.g. ester or amide groups. Their importance has been well recognized, especially with the growing demand of modern consumer products like packaging, cosmetics and pharmaceutical. Plant-based or renewable waxes are also gaining favor in recent years due to higher sustainability compared to fossil based waxes. We are seeking sustainable green oxidative cleavage process that can convert renewable ester waxes, like rice bran wax and sugar cane wax, to similar end products obtained by conventional processes. Many oxidative cleavage processes are already established in the industry, but not many are eco-friendly. Furthermore, with the shifting focus from fossil waxes to plant-based waxes, alternative oxidative technologies do result in chemically different products from different plants. Here the company is keen to explore modern bleaching technologies or to work with technology-partners with bleaching experiences on renewable materials. The company is open to partners from any country and to a variety of cooperation. Research cooperation agreements with research organizations might yield into publications or consequent R&D contracts. Depending on the stage of technology readiness, an out-licensing of the process is possible or a joint venture might be a way to further develop for feasibility studies for a pilot scale up.

We are seeking for molecules/compounds/materials which are chemically composed of two opposite parts (see Fig.). The first part of such molecules has a hyperbranched/dendrimer-like/fork shape. The second part (which is geometrically opposit to the first) is a moiety which will favour attachement. The attachment on the skin or hair surface could be generated by adhesion, covalent bonding, electrostatic attachment etc. For instance such latter moieity could react with free amines present on the hair fibers (more attachment points on the skin and hair could be considered, e.g. hydroxyl groups). Lactone groups are an example reported in literature of a reactive moiety which upon heat application can bound to the free amine of the hair. Once bounded to the skin/hair such molecules will work as molecular spacers. The molecules need to be neutrally charged, rigid, branched and have a low particle density (number of atoms in a physical volume). They will therefore decrease the interaction (e.g. Van der Walls attactions) between external particles (such as sand or dust) and the functionalized surface. Example: N-Glycans are an example of such molecular spacers and an example of desired geometrical structure. Glycan with 5 Mannose units for instance will occupy a Volume of 2.25 x 1.65 x 1.24nm with 162 atoms, which lead to a particle density of 35 x 10(^27) atoms/m^3. Such lower particle density will lead to a reduction of the Hamaker-interaction coeffiecint between the funcitonalized surface and an approaching particle. Such molecule will therefore lead to a decrease of the friction coefficient and adhesion forces.
